PMID:  7623246     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This report describes two cases of intraoperative anaphylaxis in children sensitized to latex. Both children were undergoing nonurological procedures and, despite numerous previous operations, neither had a history of unusual reaction or anaphylaxis during surgery. The problem of latex allergy is discussed with review of the current literature and suggestions for management.
